ABSTRACT
Aggressive people often use anger, aggressive body language, or other threatening behavior to bully and dominate other people. The purpose of my study was to find out whether individuals with high self esteem were more aggressive than individuals with low self esteem. Sixty eight participants from Missouri Western State University were given a survey. The survey included Rosenberg’s self esteem scale (1965) and an aggression questionnaire (Buss & Perry, 1992). Anger, physical aggression, hostility, and verbal aggression were the aggressive behaviors measured. Of the four aggressive behaviors hostility was the only one to show a strong negative correlation with self esteem.
